An incredibly useful book for all storytellers, The Complete Guide To Writing A Successful Screenplay is a book that is both an instruction manual and toolbox for the writing, format, development, story, sales, and every consideration one needs to make when writing a screenplay. The piece is a reference manual for creating compelling, high interest texts that (just so happen to fit the screenplay genre in this book but...) can be applied to a great deal of other writing as well. Readers can expect to find everything they need to format their script, create compelling settings, action, dialogue, and characters, understand their legal rights and responsibilities, and find someone to represent them and produce a great film.
A few important notes about the book are that it may be read cover to cover as a screenwriting course, or can be referenced throughout at specific portions as mini lessons or reminders of how to complete certain tasks. Furthermore, the authors of the text included a great deal of very helpful online resources and links as further examples of the concepts presented such as where to download script formats, popular Hollywood scripts, and where to do research for your work, among other things.
An exceptional book on the art, craft, and business of screenwriting, this book has everything you need to be successful in the cutthroat world of screenwriting, while using the correct methods and tools to help your realization of the perfect film come to life.
